For the Birds…

For Mosaic Monday I’m sharing some collages/mosaics of our backyard visitors.

Red-Winged Black Bird

These backyard Thrushes and Flickers have been the most fun to watch.

This next visitor surprised us along with the female eagle that I didn’t get good shots of as they came flying into the trees in our back acreage. We hope they were scouting a spot to build a nest. I’ll have a full post dedicated to the Eagles soon

Joining Angie at Letting Go of the Bay Leaf for Mosaic Monday.

We woke up to frigid temperatures this morning. It got down to -6 before it inched up again. After church it was a balmy 27 degrees. The sun has a lot to do with that. The stars were amazing to see in the night sky and morning before dawn skies. Spectacular. We’ve never lived somewhere outside of the city lights so stars were hard to see but now we get an eyeful! While standing and looking up in the sky that song “In the stars His handiwork I see, on the wind He speaks with majesty, though he ruleth over land and sea, what is that to me” comes to mind. It’s an oldie but a goodie.

  1. Great bird photos – most are totally unknown to me. I did not know there existed redwings blackbird…. But he looks very handsome.

  2. Beautiful redwings and flickers and your eagle picture is fabulous. Wonderful birds, another blessing ay your new home. (Terrible cold though, but that’s true in the whole Pacific Northwest even where you used to live and where our family is. No fun . Take care!

  3. We shared the same birds: flickers, varigated thrush, red winged blackbirds, eagles… Such a delight to watch.

  4. Ellen – those thrushes are GORGEOUS. The orange coloring against the snow is sublime. We don’t have anything that colorful at our feeders this time of year. I am also interested to see that you have red-winged blackbirds. My neighbor has them at her feeders – she is only 1.5 miles from us – but they don’t seem to have discovered us. Part of me is glad because they do tend to crowd out the little pine siskins and chickadees! Thanks for linking up to Mosaic Monday!

  5. What great captures of your backyard visitors! God’s many creations are amazing!

    I enjoyed listening to the “oldie but goodie”! Takes me back . . .

  6. Hello Ellen, you have a beautiful variety of birds there. It is a treat to see the eagle nearby, I hope they decide to nest there. Wonderful photos. Happy Monday, enjoy your day! Wishing you a great new week ahead!

  7. Watching the birds is so much fun. You have some great photos there. Now that song is going through my head, and I haven’t sung it for years!

  8. Your pictures were wonderful, Ellen! I do hope that the Eagles build a nest nearby you. They are such majestic birds!
